I had a handyman come to patch a hole in my wall. The installation was fine, but it seems he applied the mud over the tape in such a way that the joints are visible. The tape has sunk into the bedding.
Can this be fixed? If so, how? Should I just apply more mud over the joints with a large knife? also, as you can see from the picture the mud has dried in a rather sloppy way, impasto perhaps. Can I sand over all that, before applying another layer of mud? I know I risk screwing up the tape but...Also since the mud is uneven, is a sanding mesh the preferred option?
